Lovereading view...

This is compelling and sexy writing. Sadly adultery is now all too common place however described from the personal viewpoint of the Wife, the Husband and the lover it takes on a level of empathy and intimacy that is hard to tear yourself away from. It is a great read, and we won’t spoil the ending but be warned the book does not hold back when describing the passionate encounters!

If you like Tess Stimson you might also like to read books by Amanda Brookfield, Polly Williams and Joanna Trollope.

Synopsis

The Adultery Club by Tess Stimson

A wife, a husband, a mistress. Whose side will you be on?

Life couldn't be happier for Nicholas Lyon, a divorce lawyer and the adoring husband of Mal, a successful cookery writer who combines working from a comfortable home in Wiltshire with being mother to their three gorgeous daughters.

And then Sara Kaplan, a bright, vivacious young lawyer, explodes into his life like a sexual hand grenade.

Nicholas is stunned and horrified by the extent of his attraction to her. But whilst the chemistry between them is palpable, it takes catastrophic events to force him to recognize his own mortality and throw caution to the wind. For Sara, what started as a harmless fling swiftly deepens into a painful battle for Nicholas's heart with Mal, who is not quite as preoccupied in her world of food and school runs as Nicholas had believed. As Mal faces temptations of her own, she realizes she has to decide what she wants - and whether it's worth fighting for.

THE ADULTERY CLUB is the irresistible story of the perfectly balanced eternal triangle which no-one wants to be part of, but nor can they quite break away . . .
